What do you need to know about EPDM?

EPDM is a synthetic rubber that can last for many years in all weather conditions; for this reason, it is considered the best roofing membrane. EPDM is made up of ethylene and propylene from the earth’s natural gas and oil. It has become very popular and is available in many sizes and the colour choice of black or white.

Many contractors favour EPDM as it can be installed many different ways. Therefore, it can make even the toughest roofing job much easier.
